Rep. Jordan is attempting to get the FBI to launch an investigation into Hunter Biden primarily based on Russian misinformation that was laundered by means of america Senate by Sen. Ron Johnson (R-WI).
One of many largest modifications from 2016 to 2020 is that Russian propaganda is now not being mainlined into American political discourse by the media. Republicans try to raise the Russian propaganda, however they’re having little to no success.
Jordan’s letter is the act of a determined politician who has joined himself on the hip to Trump. If Trump loses and Democrats take management of Congress, Jim Jordan might be irrelevant.
The FBI isn’t going to analyze Hunter Biden. Jordan’s letter is proof that labored for Republicans in 2016 isn’t working for the GOP in 2020.
FBI Director Wray isn’t going to be suckered by Russian propaganda, as everybody can see by means of Jordan’s bid to save lots of his Trump meal ticket.
